Oakville 680’s 2017 SCRC Ride of the Year

Ride of the Year

Oakville 680 has chosen Riders Against Hunger as the Southern Cruisers Riding Club’s Ride of the Year for 2017. RAH is a motorcycle charity ride, now in its seventh year, in support of a Mississauga west food bank called Eden Food for Change. Many Southern Cruisers have been involved in the planning of this ride since the beginning and many of the area SCRC chapters have supported this ride by encouraging their members to attend. Ride organizers are excited to host Southern Cruisers from across the province this year. Funds raised through the ride will help distribute food to hungry families and provide practical cooking skills and affordable fresh produce to encourage healthy living on a limited income.

RAH Registration Options:

  • The basic registration is $35 per participant which includes full participation in the ride including the poker run, rider gift bag, breakfast and lunch.
  • Regular registration is $50 which includes full participation in all ride activities as well as a free Ride of the Year t-shirt ($20 value) and a ticket for the grand draw prize (value $500).
  • Participants also have the option of additional fundraising to receive incentive gifts, fundraising prizes and additional tickets for the grand draw prize.
  • Riders must choose either the basic or regular registration fee. Passengers can either register or ride for free if they are not interested in participating in the ride activities such as the poker run and lunch.
